I usually don’t comment on out-of-state political battles, but I can’t resist this one.
A new Public Policy Polling survey in Connecticut finds Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) with a dismal 25% approval rating while 67% give him bad marks.
Key finding: President Obama’s approval rating with Connecticut Republicans is higher than Lieberman’s with the state’s Democrats.
I admit this comes as a surprise to me. Although Lieberman has been unpopular with Democrats for a long time, I figured he had carved out enough of an Independent and Republican coalition to avoid re-election problems. This is clearly no longer the case. He is now vulnerable to both Democratic and Republican challengers.
